My little cents on oils...
With my experience of Shell in my CD70 i can say:
When ever i used shell, bike feels lighter, happier, more responsive BUT the feel fades away quickly and the enjoyment bit goes away quickly too. I'd say it feels sporty but in long run after a few days all the sporty-ness is gone.
Available shell oils are:
4-stroke engine oils | Shell Pakistan
^^In the above given range Shell advance AX5 is useless as all of our motorbikes dont support this grade: 15W-40
But AX3 and AX3 SAE 40 are usable in CG125 as they are 20W-50
About Caltex Havoline:
Works best in Honda if you find original one, Good average feel but longer lasting.
The red bottle of Havoline given blow in the link is best for CG125 as it is the correct grade: 20W-40, however mostly the bottle available is 20W-50

Additional about Caltex:
Some oil manufacturers add additives in their oils to enable them that they with stand more temperature extreme - a problem which is very common in Pakistan where there are different types of extreme weathers and when u talk about samll engines its even worse.
Additives help is adding protection but at the same time they turn into sludge over the time and deplete the oil before time, red colour of havoline is because of additives... thus if you guys are using havoline - NEVER EVER commit the mistake of over using it coupling up with harsh driving specially in summers.
Changing Havoline before time would be a better option, shell is a bit more tolerant to late oil changes.
Now coming to Zic:
Zic and Zipex are the products of: Mass Group: .::MAS Group::.
I have heard people saying its a very thin oil, most of these guys also had their engine ruined after using it. Im sure they did not use the correct grade.
My personal experience with Zipex is quite good, Better than or at par with havoline.

I did not like it much personally, engine sounded as if running on a thinner oil than recommended.
Its grade is 20w-40
Oils for scooters motorcycles bikes 2-stroke 4-stroke motor fork chain TOTAL for 2-wheelers
Pso blaze is available but i never tried it, i personally dont like the brand much.
Welcome to Pakistan State Oil
Personally I am using Yamaha Lube in my Junoon and i am very satisfied with it.
Used Havoline once and it did not suit the engine much, Yamalube was better.
It may sound very fancy but i wont recommend people to go for it, since synthetics are usually tough on weak/marginal engine seals.. thus if you have an old engine/an engine with defect, with synthetic oil its very likely its so pure and thin it would slide through the gaps and you will start burning oil without knowing it.
However... Semi Synthetic oil would be a better option, does any body knows 20W-40 Shell semi synthetic oil? does they offer it?
